3 PAX (no FNGs) – Bailout, Bookworm, Soybean


As you know, I am participating (or winning) the Pound for Pound challenge.  I am down 25 pounds since April 15.  Let me put it to you simply…I am hungry!  I have been hungrier over the past 7 weeks than I have ever been.

The gospel of Matthew says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” (Matthew 5:6)

Hunger and thirst are frequent human urges. It’s immensely satisfying to eat a meal when starving or to drink of water when parched.

Hunger is often used to convey a consuming desire, like a young and inexperienced sports team hungry for a win, or an individual who, after a string of failures, is hungry for success.

The question for your to consider today…”Are you hungry?”

Really enjoyed the time with Bookworm and Soybean as I don’t know them well.  The rucking section allowed us time to talk.   Mary sucked.
